- One common theme: The virtual tie is an OK result for Clinton but an "ominous one" for Sanders, as this New York Times analysis argues. The thinking: Iowa Democrats are a white and liberal bunch, and Sanders should have done better.
- An analysis at the Week makes a similar case, with a headline referring to Sanders' "stinging defeat." If he can't win here, he's likely in big trouble in a national race.
- Vox has much more optimistic take about Sanders' "remarkably strong" performance, and chalks it up to young voters.
